Boys Hoops: Vereen, Bonner lift Seahawks, Tigers to wins

Senior Wayne Vereen scored a career-high 22 points to lead Myrtle Beach to a 55-40 victory over visiting St. James on Friday night.

When the Seahawks came out ice cold in the first quarter and couldn’t seem to get on the scoreboard, Vereen came off the bench to hit a pair of 3-pointers – the Seahawks’ only points of the first quarter as the Sharks led 9-6.

Vereen hit two more treys in the second quarter to put Myrtle Beach on top for good, and he connected on eight free throws down the stretch to help seal the win. Nolin Butler scored 10 points and Mason Lewis added eight.

St. James (14-8 overall, 4-4 region) got a team-high 13 from Caleb Duggan and 10 from Matt Strange. Playing in their second game without suspended forward TreDarius McCallum, the Sharks suffered their second straight loss to fall behind Myrtle Beach (12-10, 5-3) in the race for second place in the region.

* North Myrtle Beach 51, Georgetown 48: The Chiefs (16-6, 6-2) survived a second-half comeback bid by the Bulldogs to maintain their spot atop the region standings with two games left in the regular season.

Jaquan Grissett scored a game-high 20 points and Matt Lindsey added 15 as the Chiefs held off a hard charge from the Bulldogs. Charlie McGirt led Georgetown with 11 points and Anthony Blair added 10.

* Conway 71, West Florence 68: Reggie Bonner posted a double-double to lead the Tigers (12-7, 4-2) to an overtime victory over the Knights on Friday.

Bonner scored eight of the Tigers’ nine points in the extra period to help Conway stay in the hunt for the Region 6-4A crown.

* Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach 83, Calvary Christian 64: Austin Guyton scored a game-high 20 points and Kendall Henry had a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds as the Saints (18-5, 3-0) downed Calvary Christian.

CAMB freshman Bernard Jones added 18 points, Cole Gore chipped in nine and Garrett Richards tallied seven for the visiting Saints, who broke open a tied game at halftime in the second half.
